Keyword - Mitosome (KW-1025)


Protein localized in the mitosome, an organelle found in "amitochondrial" unicellular organisms which do not have the capability of gaining energy from oxidative phosphorylation. Mitosomes are almost certainly derived from mitochondria, they have a double membrane and most proteins are delivered to them by a targeting sequence. Unlike mitochondria, mitosomes do not contain any DNA. The mitosome functions in iron-sulphur cluster assembly.
